How To Get Bike Insurance Details Using Registration Number

When you purchase a new bike, the first thing you need to do is, getting it registered at your nearest Regional Transport Office (RTO). After the process of registration is complete, a unique registration number is allotted to the bike, and a Registration Certificate (RC) is issued to the owner. As per the Motor Vehicle Law, this registration number is mandatory to drive a vehicle on Indian roads.

Also, by using the registration number of a bike, anyone can get its basic details such as the name of the owner, two wheeler insurance details, the validity of its Pollution Under Control (PUC) certificate, and road tax details. In case you don't know how to get a bike's insurance details by registration number, you are at the right place. We'll tell you in this article how to do so.

But, first, let's understand what the registration number of a vehicle is.

What is Bike's Registration Number?

As mentioned above, the registration number of a bike is a unique number allotted to it by the RTO where it is registered. This registration number acts as an identity card for the vehicle. It helps the traffic police authorities and the common public, know a vehicle's basic details including its RTO, fitness status, insurance details, engine and chassis number, PUC details, etc.

The basic format of a bike's registration number in India is "AA 00 AA 0000". Here, the first two letters denote the state in which the bike is registered. The following two-digit number is the code of the RTO where the bike's registration is done. The subsequent two letters indicate the RTO sequence, whereas the next four-digit number is the unique registration number allotted to the bike.

Note that the first six characters of two or more bikes can be the same, but the last four digits will always be different.
